, we heard nancy pelosi say it -- tax hikes. nonnegotiable. can this solve this? >> she says they are all adults and she automatically puts demands on the table. i thought the whole reason we were going to come together is that everyone was going to say, everything is on the table. in the nancy pelosi blood thirst to raise taxes on wealthy people -- doll two things. tell cause this economy to shed 700,000ions and cause our gdp, economic growth to decrease 1.5%. president obama own this is economy. if they are hell bent on raising tax rates, they are going to make the economy weaker and run into the next election in 2 years and really take a bath, if it looks like they didn't have the economy and improving the economy front and center on their agenda. >> eric: what about it, margie, with nancy pelosi's blood thirst and the obama administration's raiding the taxes on the wealthiest? >> when you look at electorate, half of the electorate wants to see tax increases for the wealthiest americans and another 15% want to see everybody taxed. have you a clear majority of americans tha

leader nancy pelosi sought to project coughs, and even though she said no one broached specific figures for an overall deal. >> i think it would be good if we did something in the 4 trillion dollar category of deficit reduction which is similar to the grand bargain that was discussed last year. >> nonpartisan budget hawks eyeing the opening round of talks with cautious optimism. >> i'm worried people say if i don't get my way i'll go off the cliff and you hear that on both sides, frankly, but i've also seen incredible interest and openness to putting in place a deal, both from president obama and leader boehner, and a number of members of congress. >> an aide to senator majority leader harry reid told fox news, the democrats are open to various tax loopholes only if the republicans agree first to raise taxes on those making $250,000 or higher. sound familiar, chris. >> does a bit. thanks from the white house. president obama won reelection on a promise to raise taxes on high earners as a plan to raise our massive debt. republicans say they agree with the goal, but want to do it a differ

and ana navarro. this is a reporter asking nancy pelosi a question. she made it clear today she wants to remain the democratic leader in the house. >> you, mr. hoyer, all over 70, is your decision to stay onto prohibit younger leadership from moving forward? >> so you're suggesting everybody at the moment step aside? you don't realize that's quite offensive i guess. >> let me start with you, cornell. are you surprised she wants to stay on as minority leader? >> no. i'm not at all. she's been a fantastic leader. she was a fantastic speaker moving through historic things throughout the house without her strong leadership probably would not have gotten done. the house democrats picked up last check eight or nine seats, wolf. and in the end tally we actually got more people voting for house democrats than republicans. and we probably could have taken back the house if the seats weren't so dog gone gerrymander. i don't think it's a surprise she's staying in there. she's a strong leader. she should stay in there. i think the question is a little offensive. frankly, a lot of old men are in p
or cars. president obama and lawmakers are cautiously optimistic about a budget deal. but nancy pelosi says it must include tax hikes for the wealthy. we have the latest. >> reporter: shannon, the house minority leader, nancy pelosi, sits at the negotiates ing table with the leaders, trying to steer the country away from the fiscal cliff. she says he will not accept a deal that does not include tax rate increases for the wealthiest americans. but she also said she thinks negotiators have enough of a sense of urgenc tow get a deal done by the middle of december. >> we are all grownups. we have a responsibility to the american people. the elements for an agreement are there. time is of the essence, the quicker we do tthe more confidence we instill, the better it is for the economy and the american people. >> reporter: republicans, too, have expressed optimism that the fiscal cliff can be avoided and are open to signing legislation that includes new sources of revenue. but the president wants to raise most of that new money with $1.6 trillion over a decade. republicans are not likely to g
@thekudlowreport. we'll read them later in the show. >>> guess what? nancy pelosi is staying. wow! in congress. as the minority leader of the house democrats. holy cow. surrounded by women democrats at the house, nancy pelosi told reporters today they were looking into the future. more women, more minorities in the incoming house. more than ever before with her decision. the democratic leadership is not going to change in the new house of representatives in january. and all i'll say is my condolences to her longtime deputy, steny hoyer. >>> anyway, stocks dropped sharply on president obama's press conference today. the dow closed down almost 700 points since the election itself. keith boykin notwithstanding. we'll look at the growing number of investor pessimists. this is not good. >>> later, markets also have their eye on a big escalation in mideast hostility. hamas declaring war on israel. this while we have no cia director. >>> and don't forget, free market capitalism is the best path to prosperity. i don't know why we have to raise $800 billion in revenues. makes no sense to me. cut spendi
, former communications director for nancy pelosi, and mark mckinnon, distributor to the daily beast. what about the need for prayer, brendan? you've been through budget negotiations and saw the democratic leader nancy pelosi said over the weekend that there is no give on the, you know, fundamental demand about some adjustment on tax rates. >> right. >> top rates, that you can't get enough by capping deductions to make up what you need to get some balance going forward. what about prayer? is that going to be helpful? >> prayer is always helpful and so is trying to work together in a constructive way. i think the meeting the leaders had at the white house with president obama last week, both sides came out and said we have to get something done. i am optimistic. there's a lot of tough issues that have to be worked out but i think they can do it. >> mark, all joking aside, are you as optimistic? i read between the lines and you see speaker boehner clearly wants a deal and, perhaps, has more leverage now with the house republican caucus, but once you get down to the actual negotiations, there

about what transpired. let's listen to house minority leader nancy pelosi. >> lifting the spirits and confidence in our country we will have an economic downturn that must be avoided. we understand our responsibility there. we understand that it has to be about cuts. it has to be about revenue. it has to be about growth. it has to be about the future. so as we cut investments and as we talk about revenue, we have to do so in a way that promotes growth and supports the future. it was good. i feel confident that a solution may be in sight. mitch? >> i can only echo the observations of the other leaders it was a constructive meeting. we all understand where we are. i can say on the part of my members that we fully understand that you can't save the country until you have entitlement programs that fit the demographics of the changing america in the coming years. we're prepared to put revenue on the table, provided we fix the real problem. even though most of my members, i think without exception believe that we're in the dilemma we're in not because we tax too little but because we sp
better than to take the last budget the senate did, harry reid with his buddies, nancy pelosi, the 2008 free bailout, free stimulus budget and spent $2.5 trillion. nobody complained it didn't spend enough. if we adopted their budget right now, the 2008 budget, $1 trillion per year less than we are spenning right now. >> sean: we spend all of this time with an election and we are right back where we were. i don't know the republicans that voted for an increase -- here's my question to you. here's my question. do you think the leadership in the house is glg to hold the line on increasing taxes? >> well, gee... i know that we had the biggest conservative wave election in american history 2 years ago. two years later, we had a continuing resolution, a continuing resolution, a continuing resolution, debt ceil being increase. we -- ceiling increase. we ended up cutting nothing, really. we really-- >>> you are saying no. >> two years of leverage for nothing. it's time to use the leverage of the house. it's one-half of one-third, but the most important half of the legislative body. the founders
-door meeting, house speaker john boehner said, quote, i believe we can do this. nancy pelosi said we understand our responsibility. if they fail to act, the bush tax cuts would end on january 1. that's the same day sharp cuts to government spending take effect. economists fear the combination could send the country back into a recession. a train that slammed into a parade float, carrying wounded veterans was moving slower that the posted speed limit. safety officials in texas say it was going 62 in a 70-mile-per-hour zone and the train applied its emergency brakes before crashing into the trailer. the accident killed four veterans and injured 16 other people. i'm marianne rafferty. now back to "on the record." >> greta: harry reid telling senate republican leaders, no, rejecting a request for a watergate-style select committee to investigate the benghazi attack. earlier, john mccain led the charge for a special committee. but in a letter tonight, senator reid saying there are plenty of committees investigating benghazi and he took aim at senator mccain, saying he missed one of those committee m
's a little simplicity. nancy pelosi is keeping her job. >> i made a decision to submit my name to, once again, serve as the house democratic leader. >> now, if she can only get those talking points straight. >> we did not have majority, but we had the gavel. excuse me, we don't have the gavel. >> somebody who seems to have the gop gavel, louisiana governor bobby jindal, the likely 2016 contender told republicans this week "stop being the stupid party." meanwhile, steven colbert told us to stop talking about 2016. >> do you think it's too early to talk about 2016? we don't think so. >> okay, fine, we'll go back to 2012. why do some folks want to go back to the 1860s? >> this is a petition asking the government to what alabama succeed from the union. >> that's right from alabama, alaska, ohio and oklahoma, some citizens want to breakaway, yes, secede from the united states. >> who is going to pay for the post offices? >> good question. >> i think it's ridiculous, honestly. i really do. i think it's really dumb. >> actually not ridiculous. like we're living in the far side or twilight zone. who
to predict a winner? >> i am not. >> and what is nancy pelosi going to do for the rest of her life? >> i'm going to call my lifeline. right now all eyes are on nancy pelosi. about a week and a half ago, mr. pelosi announced that the democratic leadership and elections for house were going to be moved to after thanksgiving. the house republican leadership elections in the senate and the democratic and republican leadership elections are all going to be next week. this is traditionally when things happen. the fact that she set this off a couple of weeks led to speculation that she wanted to see how the election would turn out, she wanted to have some time to we whether she would even retire or resign after winning her seat on tuesday. there was a lot of speculation that pelosi would leave immediately after the 2010 election. she moved up the elections to cut back on the amount of time that people would be able to organize against her. she ultimately made a bid for the majority leader, but lost ultimately. there was a lot of consternation among democrats. democrats wanted a little more soul
are back. today representative nancy pelosi said she'll serve as house democratic leader for two more years. she actually hummed the song "hallelujah" as the women of the incoming 113th congress joined her for the news conference. this is a record-breaking group, my friends. there was barely room on the platform for all of them to show up and be a part of it. pelosi will be joined by 80 other women in the u.s. house of representatives. 20 women will serve in the united states senate. it's a diverse group of women who probably won't agree on every issue. their success socked the republicans, no doubt about it. senate democrats were the underdogs in the election cycle, especially in the great state of north dakota, the prairie. republicans counted on congressman rick burg to defeat heidi heitkamp. didn't happen. they were wrong. and one of the nation's most accurate forecasters got it wrong as well. >> we missed the north dakota senate race. >> yes, you did. you said that republican rick burg would win. he lost. >> he lost. >> foerp north dakota attorney general heidi heitkamp narrowly defeat
at this and moving on it. but with now 45 days to go, you know, i think the minority leader nancy pelosi's goal of christmas is a good one. it's probably also realistic that it won't happen before then. >> what about to both of you, if, if we get the money, say we get this trillion dollars one way or another, is there a guarantee, nancy, to you first, that, that this goes to reducing the deficit? i mean, do we have that guarantee? is there any way it could be spent? >> well, i feel like the president has talked about spending some of that before on infrastructure projects, and the idea of creating jobs. but i do think that the bulk of it will go towards reducing the deficit. that's something that both parties agree really has to be tackled. and the problem is that if they don't tackle it now they'll have to tackle it down the road. so i think that this will be -- this is one of the few shared goals that they do have, taking that money to reduce it. >> you agree, ed? >> yeah, absolutely. i think you mention infrastructure. i mean, that is one possible spending program or stimulus-like proposal t
house minority leader nancy pelosi, harry reid, treasury secretary, vice president and senate minority leader mitch mcconnell. stuart: they will be in that spot until the end of the year. another report on government race, the defense department spending $6 billion on nonmilitary research. projects in a million on things like jesus hating fictional space aliens and developing a rollup version. this is the defense department, this is the pentagon. >> we have always argued every corner of the government in every bureaucracy has government abuse in the finance department is not exempt of that. this is another example of out-of-control spending that has gotten $16.2 trillion. remember the stimulus spending, we were paying for things like shrimp, and now every week it seems you are all reporting more on these stories and they never learn. republicans a fiscal cliff conversations should be demanding serious spending cuts. >> i agree. this is our money, fiscal money, taxpayer dollars at work. stuart: more with the company next. @ stuart: time for the highliiht reel. all charles. stuart: mitt
: so, that is the latest on that. also this morning, "nancy pelosi considers leaving post as house democratic leader." "the decision could come as early as tomorrow, wednesday." washington journal will be live from capitol hill tomorrow with several lawmakers from 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. to keep you updated on what is happening this week in washington. the looming fiscal cliff, that is what we are talking about with all of you today. how do we avoid it, should entitlement spending be part of the package? james, go head. caller: i had to retire because of back problems or whenever, but i do not get disability, i would not apply for it, it is an entitlement. it is ludicrous to ask people in my age bracket, people who pay for their medicare -- that is what people are not saying. we paid for it for a long time. many of us are sick, we are not asking for anyone to help us along. we are not asking for the government, we paid for this. what it really is is a pyramid scheme. you have to get people working in this country so that they can pay in. it is not the people cheating the system.
stories yesterday is nancy pelosi, the top democrat in the house plans to stick around in her job as minority leader. how surprising was that news yesterday? caller: the sense upon reporters is that was what we expected. i think there was some questions both in 2010 when democrats lost control of the house. then again this year when democrats fell short of their initial goal of regaining control of the house whether leader nancy pelosi would stick around. i think she was signaling quietly by not letting people know she was staying. i think it was clear she wanted to first talk about and give the news to democrats behind closed doors. host: what does it indicate in terms of the direction of congressional democrats? what can we read from this move? caller: that the pelosi doctrine or the leadership she has had over 10 years, she was very instrumental in a lot of passing the legislation that the obama administration passed during its first term. health care, dodd-frank, a lot of these pieces of legislation. we are going to continue to see her in her role as minority leader and workin
katherine. nancy pelosi suggested maybe there is a bit of wiggle room in the $250,000 amount. maybe we could move it higher who is considered rich in this country. is that something though that you think john boehner is even interested in? >> i think it is probably something that he might consider. this is how negotiations work. congressional "fight club." they stake out their positions and sort of move closer together as they come together and actually meet and discuss this. there are couple options what they can do on the table. president signaled perhaps it doesn't have to be all about getting rates to clinton era levels. perhaps getting revenue from other places. i think that would be healthier, broader tax reform kind of deal made. i'm not sure whether they're all savvy enough to make that deal. i mean. martha: seems to me that is the major issue here. that is what john boehner was hinting at. he is suggesting that if you remove some of the loopholes that is a tax increase on the wealthy in this country. i feel like that is a message that has gotten across in perhaps a clear enough way.
reid and senator minority leader mitch mcconnell and nancy pelosi not surprising here. what's the expectation? >> well, you know, we'll see. publicly, suzanne, there has been a much more consillatory tone that we've seen since the election, whether it's from the president or the house speaker john boehner, but i can tell you in talking to sources privately on both sides of the aisle, they admit that it's all about positioning and posturing to make sure at the end of the day if we do go off the fiscal cliff that they're not blamed for it. they're the ones who looked reasonable, not unreasonable, and they're preparing for the other side to blame them for the opposite, if that makes sense. that's a lot of what you are saying in public. the reality is that neither side has a really clear machine date or clear vote and no one wants to look at the end of the day like they never gave compromise a chance. listen to republican bob corker, though, because there does seem to be a little bit of a crack on the republican side on whether or not it's okay to raise some taxes. >> i think th
: house minority leader nancy pelosi says congress wants to show a message of confidence to the markets and she said they should aim to strike a deal on the fiscal cliff by christmas. the special lasted just over an hour. president obama said nothing explicit about reining in entitlement spending. instead the chief executive spoke about approaching the deficit in a balanced way and talked about long-term impediments to growth. >> i think we are all aware that we have some urgent business to do. we have got to make sure that taxes don't go up on middle class families and our economy remains strong that we are creating jobs and that's an agenda democrats and republicans and independents, people all across the country share. >> reporter: republican leaders gave no indication they are willing to entertain the idea that the president wants them to, namely the raising of tax rates on some particular categories of income earners. the top republican told reporters he believes the dilemma isn't because we tax too little, but because we spend too much. >> we fully understand that you can't save t
cliff issue. we have new comments from nancy pelosi on the fiscal cliff today. let's listen to that. >> would you accept a deal that does not include tax rate increases for the wealthy. we have seen a possible compromise that would leave rates the same but cap deductions for top earners? >> no. the president made it clear there are not enough -- what you described is a formula and a blueprint for hampering our future. >> what do you think? does this mean a deal will not get done? >> i think there is desire on both sides to get a deal done. that doesn't mean we will see one. both sides are taken the election to mean that the american people want action. the president has taken it to mean the american people endorsed his so-called balanced approach to balancing the budget. and we saw spirited koopg with the leaders coming out after the meetening a now they mr. get down to the details where to make cuts and revenue increases and can do you do it by just closing loopholes, is that enough or do you have to talk about tax rates in particular think tax rating for the wealthy. that's is whe
